. and he'll be introduced by senators john mccain, by elizabeth warren and the current secretary of state, hillary clinton. it's expected to be very different than the fiery hearing yesterday in that very same room where secretary clinton made a passionate defense to republican senators aggressive questioning about what happened in benghazi. >> the fact is we had four dead americans. was it because of a protest or was it because of guys out for a walk one night who decided they would go kill some americans? what difference at this point does it make? it's our job to figure out what happened and do everything we can to prevent it from ever happening again, senator. >> i want to bring in ron, national correspondent and editorial director, and michael crowley, times deputy washington bureau chief. good morning, ron, let me start with you. i thought the hearing yesterday had so many fascinating moments to it. should be very different today, don't you think? >> yeah. that was probably the best moment you pulled out there. that was secretary clinton being forceful, showing some accountability,
't think, i'm not sure. >> senator mccain was asking about the president's role. >> senator mccain made a huge issue out of what i made clear our view is a nonissue. >> over the confusion of the talking points saying the american people deserve the truth. >> you ought to have your facts straight. >> one week after the attacks, carney said the initial information suggested there was concrete evidence it was sparked by protests over video. >> that what we know thus far. based on the evidence, concrete evidence, not the supposition, the concrete evidence we have thus far. >> carney was asked to name the concrete evidence. >> assessment made by the intelligence community based on the information they had. >> now another looming question is how the president can still claim that al-qaeda has been decimateed when there is still clearly a threat in northern africa and elsewhere. today, secretary clinton testified the u.s. clearly wiped out their core, such as usama bin laden but added we can "kill the leaders" and yet their affiliates keep growing. bret? >> bret: ed henry live on the north law

was on that day, september 11. and then finally, senator mccain stressed why wasn't there some u.s. military power available to come to the rescue of the people who were trapped in the embassy annex so that people wouldn't have ended up dying on the roof essentially unable to protect themselves against the mortar fire they were taking. and you could see, he's still angry about it. >> rose: the other thing he considered unacceptable was her response with senator johnson when she said, "what difference does it make?" >> i thought that was an especially poignant response from secretary clinton. and it reflected an uncertainty to this day, i'm told among intelligence officers who have reviewed the evidence they have of what happened that night, believing it or not, they still don't know precisely how that attack came to happen. they know there were terrorists who were associated with al qaeda, were part of the group. they know there were others who kind of wandered into the scene. and when secretary clinton said, "what difference does it make exactly how it came together, let's find it and punish them
committee experience with senator mccain over those years. we had subcommittees. we took it very seriously. we held hearings. we brought people in. we had a three-day markup that was sack crow sank but we had the qdr, where the defense department submitted that and it helped to provide a framework. when i got to the state department, i said, there is nothing like that at the state department. so i started the first ever quad ren yell first ever qdr. you can help me continue that and make the department have to ask the hard questions if you legs late the way the qdr is legs lated for the defense department. secondly, you can help by making sure that the needs we come to you with, like what are the training needs, the budgetary needs, the bureaucratic changes that are needed, that you help support that. and certainly we've talked a little bit about the budget, but getting that transfer authority, if you can help us with the house, it's $1.4 billion, marine security guard detachment, 553 million, we've been closely coordinating with d.o.d., historically marine security guards do not do person

, along with lindsey graham and senator mccain and others. in the interim, i urged the administration to act immediately to suspend foreign assistance if the tunisian government permitted in obstructing the investigation. on january 4, i received a tepid response from the acting deputy, assistant administrator for public affairs at usaid, which i submit for the record, it was a bland assurance that the tunisian government was cooperating. was cooperating? five weeks and the f.b.i. had to wait? then the f.b.i. three hours to talk to him? and we gave this government $325 million last year. today i wrote usaid expressing my disappointment that the administrator himself could not respond directly to a member of congress who serves on a committee of jurisdiction and further pointed out what should be obvious, the tunisian government did not cooperate. the tunisian government never sought the aid, u.s. taxpayer money was in jeopardy. they have not faced a single consequence for undermining u.s. national security. i submit the letter for the record. sadly, the failure to respond forcibly and
things that we see greater cooperation on. >> senator mccain. >> thank you. again, thank you for allowing me the honor of introducing you to the committee and i look forward to many of our spirited conversations that we have had for many years. i didn't want to bring it up but since it was brought up, i have to respond again. americans do care. they do care. they do care why four americans were murdered and they do care why the american people were misled. they were misled by the talking points that the sec -- that secretary rice told the american people which were false. they were misled when the information that we needed to know about how those talking points were put together, which we still don't know the answers to, many months later. we were misled when it was -- when we were not allowed to -- when we don't -- still haven't gotten answers why there was not better security at the consulate when there was clear indications of the threat. we were misled when we were not told that there was a request for the 16-member security force to remain at the consulate and were removed. the list
senator from massachusetts, elizabeth warren and republican senator john mccain. >>> president obama's second term barely underway. a lot of political buzz about 2016 and the next presidential election and some of the things happening fuelling that buzz. you have hillary clinton's testimony about the terrorist attack in benghazi, libya adding to the speculation about whether or not she is going to run. some consider clint's five hour confrontation as a sign of things to come. and then you have vice president joe biden shaking hands, jogging along the parade route after the inauguration, was he trying to show he is pretty fit enough to be president in four years? joining us to talk about all of this anna navarra and larry, the director for the center for paul acs at the university of virginia. larry, i want to start off with you. a lot of people say we might be seeing a preview of 2016. folks i have talked to say bill clinton making sure there are no barack obamas around the corner, clearing the way for his wife. can you see any signs? can you read the tea leaves? >> i think people ar
didn't have all of those details republican senator john mccain today at this senate hearing was blistering in terms of these questions. take a listen. what was the president's activities during that seven hour period? on the anniversary of the worst attack in american history september 11th, we didn't have the department of defense forces available for seven hours. two brave americans died in the last hour. >> now, one other question that is still remains after these hearings today is whether or not the white house can claim that al qaeda has been disseminated when clearly the terrorist group is still launching attacks in northern africa and elsewhere. the secretary answered that by saying we have taken out the core leadership like usama bin laden. can you kill the leader and their affiliates just seem to keep growing, shep? >> shepard: ed henry at the white house. thanks. it looks like the u.s. government will indeed be able to keep paying the bills at least for a few more months. the house of representatives today voted to raise the debt ceiling until the middle of may. se
to salter with the mccain campaign in 2008. and i said, why did you guys go the path you did? mark salter? i said, why don't you go ahead and push a bill where somebody worked here for five years. they could go back to mexico. they could apply. and they could come and have legal status. why didn't you go that route? americans would have supported that. he laughed. he said, because the afl-cio opposed it. and the one senator that was constantly at the forefront of opposing that form of immigration reform was a senator from illinois named barack obama. he carried their water on blocking this pathway to citizenship when he was in the senate. the afl-cio put out a press release yesterday talking about the importance of not compromising on citizenship. so the unions themselves -- there are a lot of cross-currents here. the unions themselves don't want an influx of new workers in america, do they? >> no, they don't. that's one of the reasons this organizing for action, jim messina's full-time job is trying to get the union's in line, but it's going to be hard. it's hard on the democratic side. we'
information. >> ifill: republican john mccain pressed clinton on why u.s. consular staff evacuated from libya to germany weren't questioned sooner. >> i categorically reject your answer to senator johnson about, well, we didn't ask these survivors, who were flown to ramstein the next day, that they-- that this was not a spontaneous demonstration. to say that it's because an investigation was going on-- the american people deserve to know answers, and they certainly don't deserve false answers. so here we are, four months later, and we still don't have the basic information. now, if you want to go out and tell the american people what happened, you should at least have interviewed the people who were there instead of saying, no, we couldn't talk to them because an f.b.i. investigation was going on. >> well, senator, i understand your very strong feelings. you knew chris. you were a friend of chris. you were one of the staunchest supporters of the efforts to dislodge qaddafi and try to give the libyan people a chance. and we just have a disagreement. we have a disagreement about what did happen
mccain yesterday. [video clip] >> why is it the administration still refuses to provide the full text with the deletion of terrorism in the talking points? why do we care? because of the classified ever mission had been included, it is an entirely different version of events to the american people. going to the american people to tell them what happened, then you ought to have your facts al qaeda iscluding a decimated and our embassies are secure. here we are four months later and we still do not have the basic information. if you want to go out and tell the american people what happened, you should at least have interviewed the people who were there. instead of saying, no we cannot talk to them because an fbi investigation was going on. host: front page. our next call is an independent from ohio. caller: good morning. i have two. . first, there is no doubt in my mind what happened was muddied for political reasons. if you refuse to associate with a government that plays politics when their allies in the balance of decisions, everybody lies, but the question i asked is who gets the wo
community? >> well, remember, president bush worked in a bipartisan fashion, john mccain, republican. ted kennedy, the lead sponsor, a democrat, president bush working in concerts 3 years. i would remind you, president obsmga was one of the people in the senate who voted to kill that bipartisan immigration reform, voting for every killer amendment offered up by the labor union. there is an element in the republican party, many of us believing that the issue must be settled. but the question's going to be, will the president work in a bipartisan fashion on this? or will he attempt to use it for partisan gain as he has the last four years? he could have taken this issue off the table in 2009 or 2010. but it wasn't apparently important enough for him to deal with. how will he approach the issue? bipartisan or confrontation? >> on the flip side, joe ogun control, there doesn't seem to be a lot of indication that the president has reached out to the other side on this issue. in fact, all indications are there is going to be this effort to go grassroots and really put the pressure on from the o
